I attended training for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 yesterday. It is not anticipated to hit US showrooms until later this summer so it was great to get a sneak peek!
I saw a variety of paints and interiors, although all were sport models. Here is a video of the test drive cars:
I had several sections of training on the advanced technology, build quality and competitive comparisons.
I was able to test the Parking Pilot, Active Brake Assist, and Distance Pilot Distronic on a closed course. In short, the car is better a recognizing things in the road and helping you to stop on time. Also, it parks itself much faster!
I went for a nice long drive in the E300 on both highways and city streets to feel the engine, new 9-speed transmission and overall feel. The 241 horsepower and 279 lb/ft or torque was plenty for me. It is actually a touch faster than the outgoing V6 and significantly more efficient. The 9-speed erases any turbo lag and the overall build quality makes it quieter and more luxurious than ever!
The interior is beautiful. There are lots of new little details that make the E300 more plush and elegant than the outgoing model. There is enough change to be new and exciting but enough similarity that I could figure out the controls easily. I think with a day of practice this E300 will make the systems in the old E feel old.
Overall the all-new Mercedes-Benz E300 will be a great addition to the line-up and I look forward to having it for sale soon! Look for more videos coming today!
It’s been a quiet day at the dealership so I took myself for a test drive in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC300! Perhaps next time you’ll give me a call and set up a test drive for yourself!

The 2017 S63 Cabriolet dropped by for a training class today. It was love at first sight! As gorgeous as the S-Class coupe is, the cabriolet is even better!
It is scheduled for release next month, June 2016. I have one available!
Here is a video I just posted as well. More on my Facebook page.
Our first 2017 C300 coupes arrived today and my first move was to find a old body C-coupe for comparison. Here are the results!
The 2015 is the black car on the left and the 2017 is the Diamond White on the right.
Below: The top image is the 2015, with the center mounted gear shifter and the bottom is the 2017 with the column mounted selector.
The rear ends are obviously different with the 2017 being influenced by the new S-Coupe!
And for those of you who like your pictures moving, here is the video I made. Please do like it and subscribe to my YouTube channel!
Recently an AMG buyer used YouTube to invite his engine builder for coffee to discuss the process. The builder couldn’t make it to coffee but did post this video in response!
The refreshed 2017 GLS450 arrived this week and I know you want to see the differences! The GLS is on the left and the GL is on the right. These cars are the same color with similar equipment.
I made a video too! (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel!)
Here is a side-by-side of the interior changes. The color is strikingly different between the Ginger Beige in the 2017 and the Almond in the 2016. (I’m sorry that the steering wheels are upside down.)
So, there you have it! The 2017 GLS450 vs. the 2016 GL450. An evolution…
Several of our later production 2016 models are now equipped with Apple CarPlay. Here is how it works!

I went, I saw, I was impressed!
I love it when my favorite tings come together in one place!
It does not seem to be common knowledge that the Keyless Go button is removable! Here’s a quick video is a gorgeous car about how to do it!
